Green Bay daily names new business reporter
Jeff Bollier is becoming the primary business reporter for the Green Bay Press-Gazette, replacing Richard Ryman, who will continue to write a Sunday business column and cover how the Green Bay Packers impact local business.
Ryman writes, “Jeff Bollier (Boe-LEER) is a Beloit College graduate who’s spent his career in Wisconsin, working first for the Beloit Daily News and since 2003 for the Oshkosh Northwestern as a business and local government reporter. He’s received four first-place reporting awards from the Wisconsin Newspaper Association since 2008.
“I will spend most of my time reporting on Green Bay Packers’ business and ways in which it impacts the community. That will include reporting on the Green Bay Packers Foundation, an area we’ve not touched on much before. We’ve got a lot of ideas for stories and received good suggestions from readers as well. And of course the Packers’ still-undisclosed development plans for the land they bought around Lambeau Field will require close attention.
“I’ve been the primary business reporter for the Press-Gazette for 14 years and was business editor for three years before that. I make the change with some reluctance because Northeastern Wisconsin is a great place for business reporting. There are many good companies with smart owners and managers who, overall, have been more than willing to share their accomplishments and what they know. The same can be said for the unions I’ve written about.”
